Description

Equal Opportunity Employer

The mission of the Health Federation of Philadelphia is to promote health equity for marginalized communities by advancing access to high-quality, integrated, and comprehensive health and human services. Health equity is at the heart of all our work. We believe in and are firmly committed to equal employment opportunity for employees and applicants. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, age, religion, disability, sex or gender, gender identity and/or expression, sexual orientation, military or veteran status. This commitment applies to all aspects of the Health Federation of Philadelphia’s employment practices, including recruiting, hiring, training, and promotion.

JOB SUMMARY

The Division of Maternal, Child, and Family Health (MCFH) of the Philadelphia Department of Public Health (PDPH) is seeking an experienced coordinator to oversee its MCFH Community Hub, which houses the Healthy Start Doula Program, as well as other MCFH direct service programs. The Healthy Start Doula Program is a free home visiting program that provides education and care coordination to pregnant women and families of children under the age of eighteen months. In addition to home visiting, the Healthy Start Doula Program offers an ongoing educational series focusing on essential topics within perinatal health. The goal of the Healthy Start Doula Program is to lower risk factors associated with preterm birth, low birth weight, infant mortality and poor developmental outcomes. The purpose of the program is to improve health outcomes before, during, and after pregnancy, and reduce racial/ethnic differences in rates of infant death and adverse perinatal outcomes. The MCFH Community Hub is a new community-based site that will hold regular classes and support groups, host special events, provide space for case management appointments (if participants prefer not to be visited in the home), as well as serve as the field office location for several of the MCFH direct service programs. The MCFH Community Hub Coordinator is responsible for overseeing the day to day operations of the MCFH Community Hub out of which the Healthy Start Doula Program will be run, including coordinating all classes and other site events, as well as managing inventory and deliveries.

The mission of MCFH is to empower all Philadelphia mothers, children, and families to create and live healthy lives. We are committed to eliminating racial health disparities and elevating community voice. We accomplish our mission through coalition building, data and evaluation, policy and advocacy, public health campaigns, direct service, and capacity building.
